Indexing Services

If you are not sure that you need an index or who should create your index, see Why Index?

Because this is my passion as well as my business, you will find my rates are at the low end of industry standards. My indexing rates are $5.50 per indexable page. In a typical nonfiction book, the text of the entire book is indexed as well as substantive content in notes. Much of the front matter is not indexed nor are glossaries, bibliographies, and other such lists.

I offer a no-cost, no-obligation review of your project* and will provide a precise analysis of how many indexable pages you have and what the total project cost would be. If you choose to proceed, I’ll provide a contract for the project. I ask for a 50% down payment before the indexing begins, with the balance due at the completion of the project. I accept payments through PayPal or Stripe or by check through the mail.**

*I reserve the right to refuse any particular work which violates my Statement of Faith or contains profanity, inappropriate sexual content, is morally objectionable, criminal, or promotes anti-Christian sentiments, beliefs, or practices. I also reserve the right to define any of the mentioned reasons according to the dictates of my own conscience (or as God leads me). In addition to the reasons already given, I will refuse to edit certain manuscripts that may, infrequently, fall outside of my expertise.

**An online payment service fee of 3% will be added to the invoice for paying online with a debit or credit card. However, you may deduct the 3% online fee by submitting an electronic check through Stripe or by sending a check, payable to “Elizabeth Smith,” to the address on the emailed invoice.
